Wily Bream

Have been fortunate to finally after yrs of planning and dreaming to move onto Mandurah canals. Not a mansion but hey its on water.
The previous owners must not have been fishers and I suspect fed the bream, because they come up very close to the edge with little fear. AND there is some trophy size there I can see (but then its a fisherman talking and you know the tall tales!!!!).
Been catching the odd legal crab and dropping the shells back in and they go crazy.
But wow as soon as you float anything with a hook and line down among the "berley" you can clearly see the cunning nature. It's unweighted, direct fluoro (light as 2lb)direct to braid, but hey smash anything else, but stop, look and dodge anything with a hook in it.
Have among the Blackies hooked Tarwhine, but not a single black, not even the junior models among the large ones.
Just make you realize how clever these cunning trophy fish are, and how good it must feel to hook a 40cm plus model.
Will keep you updated if, and a big if, I manage to land (and return these "old men of the sea").
